2010 VW Passat Komfort

2010 Volkswagen Passat Review

(4 Stars)  Near Audi appeal for less

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Passat has been bringing a lot of value to the midsized sedan family for many years, the 2010 model is no different, but does have a whole new look that will keep heads turning. The Passat can be purchased in both sedan and wagon body styles depending on your taste. This year's model no longer offers a V-6 option, the only engine being offered in the 2010 Passat is the Inline four cylinder engine that doess offer plenty of power to make the Passat zippy and definitely not underpowered. The Passat does offer a 6 speed transmission in automatic or manual versions this year. For those looking for more traction control, there is an optional all wheel drive version available.

The standard options that come with every Passat are very impressive and include a sunroof, heated seats, satellite radio, Bluetooth features and big 17 inch rims. This may be part of the reason that it carries a rather high starting price. The Passat does offer some solid fuel economy with its 31 mpg on the highway which will be appreciated by any driver.
